*NEW* H is for Holly: The Alphabet Series #3

As things usually go when being inspired by life rather than doing things in proper order, the third letter in my alphabet series is actually the 8th. But hopefully no one will complain too loudly (wink, wink). I wasn’t planning to make the next installment seasonal in any way, but I kept looking at that RED frame, and suddenly knew exactly what needed to go inside.

I don’t have a planned release scheduled for this series. With 26 letters to chart, it might take me ten years to get through them all, since I have other ideas and plans and designs in the works too. They won’t be released in alphabetical order, but instead, as inspiration strikes.

The one thing you can count on is that they will all be round, designed to fit into the same frame, which can be found on etsy.

You could buy one frame and swap out the letters as you see fit, or a grouping of four or more of them for a nice collection to spell out your last name or a favorite word.Or, you could finish your pieces as ornaments for an alphabet tree. The options are multiple; use your creativity!
